How perfectly fitting (and wildly unplanned) that today’s “All in the details” feature should fall on the reveal of Alaina Kaczmarski’s full home tour on The Everygirl? The reason I chose this particular room to feature today of all days is because of Alaina’s arc lamp. I have been dying to get my hands on one of these gorgeous light fixtures, and I finally made it happen after catching sight of one on the Yellow Brick Home curated sale on Joss & Main.
I’ve snuck TONS of peeks into our den renovation (see a few here, here and here), but am not quite ready for the full reveal. The room has no windows and is therefore proving to be a b-i-t-c-h to photograph (pardon my French). I’m putting it off with zero grace, but fear not – You will get the details as soon as possible. Maybe next week?
Until then, let’s talk details about Alaina’s beautiful office space…
1…This IKEA hack is awesome. By putting an Expedit shelf on its side and attaching chrome legs, Alaina transformed this run of the mill piece of furniture into something custom and fabulous. I can’t wait to try the same look when we have a larger foyer in our next home (fingers crossed). And while we are gazing at this lovely little corner, don’t you just love how she put her pretty wrapping paper out in the open by the window? Definitely something we can all try at home.
2…Okay, well obviously I’m in love with her arc lamp. The drama, the elegance, the impact is almost impossible to top when it comes to light fixture options. I honestly haven’t seen many of these lamps in an office space, most swoop over living room seating, so I love that she chose to use it in this space. Sometimes it can be challenging to bring a little softness to a studio or office, but this curvaceous light balances everything to a T.
3…I can’t even tell you how many times I have put that pink rug into my virtual cart over on RugsUSA.com (budget’s not quite there yet to click “buy” though). While the arc lamp is a major player in this space, the rug is EASILY the focal point. Pink and white are best buds in everyday life, so to pair it here with billowy white sheers and sleek chrome accents is just perfect. This room all but screams feminine grace.
